Dr. Granger Avery, MD is current president of the Canadian Medical Association. Based in Port McNeil, British Columbia, Dr. Avery has more than four decades of experience in rural generalist practice and more than three decades in medical politics – all which has given him a close look at the evolving practice of medicine and provided the opportunity of working with a number of remarkable healthcare providers who share the common purpose of healthier patients, a healthier society, and a fulfilling profession.

Dr. Avery has a fervent interest in rural health, having chaired several committees dedicated to improving the health of rural populations and the doctors who work there, as well as supporting our young doctors in training.
